Post by AndréRodrigues » 2017/04/27 01:15:47

AFTER A LOT OF HEAD EACH, I DID IT! THIS IS A TUTORIAL FOR THOSE WHO WANTS INSALL THE DAVINCI RESOLVE ON CENTOS7!

THIS IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO HAS A NVIDIA VIDEO CARD

[INSTALL TUTORIAL]
[DaVinci Resolve 14]
[Linux version - CentOS 7]
[GPU: NVidia]

Let's do it as fast as possible (looks a lot but is not, u can do it REALLY fast):

1 - Download your GPU Nvidia Driver:
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

2 -Update your system. Open terminal and type:

yum update

3 - Reboot.

4 - Open terminal and type:

yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers gcc make

5 - When finished, type:

uname -r
(it's gonna print on screen the version)

rpm -q kernel-devel
(it's gonna print on screen the version)

Compare the two versions, if they are equal, proceed to the next step. If not, type on terminal:

yum -y upgrade kernel kernel-devel

Reboot the machine and do the step 5 again, if the versions now are equal, go to the next step. If not, do again the yum -y.... and reboot until they be equal.

6 - After reboot, open termina and enter on root mode:

su root # Type your password

7 - Navigate to the folder: /etc/modprobe.d

8 - Open the archive blacklist.conf (with this command line you will open the archive if exist, if not it will create one automatically):

vi blacklist.conf

9 - Add these lines to the archive:

blacklist vga16fb
blacklist nouveau
blacklist rivafb
blacklist nvidiafb
blacklist rivatv
blacklist lbm-nouveua
options nouveau modeset=0
alias nouveau off
alias lbm-nouveau off

10 - Hit ESC and type :wq to save and close the archive.

11 - Reboot

12 - During the reboot, on the GRUB Screen (selecting system boot screen), choose your system and hit "E". This will open the boot config.

13 - On the kernel line (it starts with linux...) go to the end of the line, hit a space and type: rdblacklist=nouveau

14 - Hit CTRL+X to boot with this command you add.

15 - On the login screen, open the console: Hit CTRL + ALT + F2

16 - Log in with your username and password.

17 - Log in as root again:

su root # Type your password

18 - Call the console level 3 with this command:

init 3

19 - Again enter with your login and password.

20 - Again login as root:

su root # Type your password

21 - Go to the folder where the NVIDIA Driver was downloaded.

22 - Transform the .run file in executable:

chmod +x <Nvidia file>.run

23 - Execute the install file:

./<Nvidia file>.run

24 - Follow the steps on screen to install the driver and at the end reboot the system.

25 - ALMOST DONE! The NVIDIA Driver is installed, Now let's Install DaVinci Resolve! Do the download of the installation file at:

https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/produc ... nciresolve

26 - Unzip the file and open the terminal one more time and for the last time enter in root mode:

su root # Type your password

27 - Navigate to the folder where is the DaVinci Installation.

28 - Type:

sh <DaVinciResolveArchiveName>.sh

29 - Do not run the software yet, still in termina and install zlib, type:

yum install zlib-devel

30 - And to finish, install the libpng12:

yum install libpng12-devel

DONE! Run the software and be happy!!!

Steps 1 - 25 could be replaced with 1) go to http://elrepo.org/tiki/tiki-index.php and download elrepo-release and use yum to install it. 2) Run nvidia-detect and then yum install the kmod-nvidia package it suggests. 3) Reboot.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!
